      Description

      Currently Blackboard Quiz imports are supported by two import formats that (although the files are similar) work in very different ways. This causes enormous confusion and is a constant source of support requests.

      Propose to:

      • Combine the so-called V5 and V6 formats into one
      • Allow either a zip file or the internal .dat file to be handled transparently
      • Handle multiple .dat files within a zip file
      • Detect if the .dat file contains a POOL type xml structure or a QTI style and call the appropriate code

              As this was similar to MDL 10314, that's been deleted- but please make sure dealing with this incorporates handling the multiple .dat files put into a BB zipped export, and creates categories as well.

              d.i.

              More stuff.

              • Read the manifest file - consider if there is useful info therein
              • Handle additional files (in particular pictures) contained in the zip file

              This should also support images and be compatible with examview blackboard 6+ export files as supported by various plugins via moodle discussion: Examview (Blackboard) Quiz Plugin
              Current work could be borrowed from both myself github: gjenkins/moodle question-examview-6-import
              and from work that jean-michel vedrine has done.
              I would also be happy to provide blackboard .zip test files from ExamView. Or even help with coding for a combined import.
